Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting SAN FRANCISCO (CALIFORNIA) and LAKE TAHOE (CALIFORNIA/NEVADA) - From February 1st to February 19th, 2011 - #005!




EMERALD BAY (I) !

Following my aim of skiing in many places all over the World, last year I decided I'd like to ski in the LAKE TAHOE AREA (in the border of the States of CALIFORNIA and NEVADA, in the SIERRA NEVADA/USA)! By doing so, I'd visit one of the most beautiful mountain regions in North America and also one of the most beautiful cities in the World: SAN FRANCISCO!

Flying SÃO PAULO-NEW YORK-SAN FRANCISCO-RENO (some minor changes while doing that), this was the first entire trip I planned and arranged all by myself and using internet only (flights, buses & hotels)! The fact was that when I arrived in NYC, my next flight (United) to San Francisco, together with all the other United flights after 6pm had been cancelled! So, I had to take a shuttle from the JFK to Penn Station, a train from there to Washington D.C., where I'd go to Dulles International Airport, so I could get an early morning flight finally to San Francisco... and so I did!

This picture was taken from the road, while I was walking form SOUTH LAKE TAHOE to EMERALD BAY! That day, I walked around 24km!
Here, one can see part of the Lake, part of Emerald Bay and also some of the mountains that surround the lake and where there are around 15 ski resorts!
